Newspapers Online

If you are interested in finding newspapers on line that are associated with your geographic areas of research, check out http://www.refdesk.com/paper.html. I did a quick check and found more than 90 newspaper sites listed for Florida and more than 50 for Wisconsin.

The sites you are taken to are for the modern day paper, but from those sites you may find access to archives that can take you back to the time of your ancestors. Archive access is determined by the individual newspaper, but it may be worth checking out.
